I’ll admit it, I’m a carb-aholic. Whenever I get in a mood, I always want chips or bread. Bread with pepperoni and cheese, bread with pasta, I really don’t care. I just really like carbs. Unfortunately, we always seem to have 1/2 a loaf of leftover bread. This Savory Bacon Mushroom Strata (Bread Pudding) is a great way to bring that left-over loaf to life.

I didn’t intend on writing this post but the mini turkey meatloaf I made for April Fool’s Day were so delicious I had to post the recipe. Yes, I’m using a lean meat but it’s still as comforting as ever.
Yum, this Chocolate Zucchini Bread is even more delicious than I remember. When I was pregnant with our oldest I was lucky enough to have a friend make me a chocolate zucchini bread. I had never had it before and it was so tasty. It was exactly what a pregnant me needed and wanted. This chocolate zucchini bread remix was made for the babies so it contains no cow’s milk and no eggs.
Valentine’s day is coming and we’re making white chocolate cranberry hearts. Yay, chocolate. We try to teach our littles that gifts should come from the heart. It should show people you are thinking about them. So, for valentine’s day (and other holidays) we make our gifts with our hands and from our hearts.
I’m not a football fan but this weekend is the Super Bowl and it’s always nice to have a snack. So for game day I’m making baked parmesan zucchini chips. Potato chips are a must have at any party.

The blend of sweet corn and potatoes in corn chowder is irresistible. It’s an ode to another time in my life. College. And one dish that reminds me of the blistering cold weather in Maine. There are few things better to break the cold than a good New England chowder.
There is nothing more gratifying than some crunchy, well seasoned french fries. Of course, after making several healthy dishes for family and friends, I’ve been a little more thoughtful about making my favorite food more healthful. It was also important to use that bag of 5 pound potatoes I bought last week. So I present to you baked rosemary french fries.
This spicy shrimp and grits recipe was very necessary after a hectic weekend. I needed a little reminder of my vacay with the ladies. A while ago my friends and I headed down to New Orleans for some good food and music. And that was just what New Orleans delivered. I couldn’t have asked for better food or a better time. It was just what I needed. No matter where we were, whether in a restaurant or a friend’s home, everything was delicious. So with the hectic weekend we’ve had and no sign of a break in sight, I’m missing New Orleans. Just a little.
It’s the time of year when people begin asking “what are you making for Thanksgiving?” “What type of pie are you having?” Pumpkin? Sweet potato? Well my friend threw out pecan pie. Well, that was a new one for me. But you know me, I’m always up for a sweet challenge. So I’m sharing my Bourbon Pecan Pie recipe. Hope you like it.
